Sunderland striker Fraizer Campbell has insisted he will not rush back from injury after a miserable 17 months on the sidelines.

The 24-year-old has been out of action since August 2010 after suffering a second knee injury as he prepared to return to action after an initial lengthy lay-off with cruciate ligament damage. Following several practice matches, Campbell played and scored for the reserves last week, and is nearing the point where he can be considered for selection by Martin O'Neill.

The former Manchester United player told the club's official website, "It's always good to get a goal, but the most important thing is making sure the knee is all right."
